Maybe Bedknob and Broomstick as well as the original Mary Poppins books? Make sure you find the whole ones, not movie based stuff. Bedknob is a whole series and I think there is at least a sequel to Poppins.
Perhaps Roald Dahl books.
Thank you .I read alot.?
I love, love, love 101 Dalmatians by Dodie Smith. Obviously non-human protaganists, but it might have the British charm you’re after.
I read that book a few years ago and absolutely loved it. But my favorite of hers is I capture the castle.
The Chronicles of Narnia also moves from a real world to a fantasy setting and back again (although it’s set at a later time period than the other books mentioned, WW II and just after the war).
Clive Barker’s books for kids are interesting.
Also, “Un Lun Dun,” by China Mieville is pretty good.
E. Nesbit books are fabulous and full of imagination!
